Still having trouble trying to make time to workout? I totally get it. Our lives are busy already, now trying to fit in a few times a day to burn some extra calories isn’t always easy. A few months ago a friend asked for some ideas on getting a little workout done while at work. Sometimes we just have to get a little creative.

If you are one of the many who work outside the home for 8 hours a day, it can be an uphill battle to burn enough calories to lose weight. There are a few options though!

Workout Tip for Weight Loss – Make Time for Workouts

make time for workouts

Sometimes we have to just make time for workouts where we can, which means taking advantage of every moment we can. How do you use your lunch hour? You definitely need some time to eat, but what do you think about doing a beneficial 15 min workout using your desk and chair?

Crazy, you say?

I say…give it a try!

You don’t have to always break a pouring stinky sweat to burn calories and tone muscle. However, if you do break a sweat, there are some athletic wipes that will have you refreshed in a jiffy!

These are the ones I just ordered from Amazon for a Fitness Conference I’m attending. There won’t be time to shower in between classes and workouts…but with these I will stay fresh for whoever is sitting beside me. I can only hope that person has used some also!

There are a couple of things you can do while at work to help progression towards your weight loss and fitness goals. Below are some examples of exercise that can be done easily on your lunch break!

15 Min Office Workout

Walking for 20-30 min

Nutrition for Weight Loss

I really enjoy lean chicken breasts. There are so many ways to prepare them. My kids get tired of chicken…so for their sake I do try to change it up often.

Lemon Garlic Chicken

1/2 cup Lemon juice
1/4 cup Honey
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
6 cloves garlic, minced
2 lbs Chicken Breasts
Salt & Pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients. Marinate at least 1 hour. Grill over medium-high heat until done.
